During A3C this year Ms. Kommunication & Pandemic TV caught up with the LiveMixtapes team of Torae, Skyzoo & Pro Status to discuss the basketball game, music & of course A3C in Atlanta. One of the few times we get to see Skyzoo without a cap on.
NQM traveled down to Atlanta at A3C and they caught up with Torae at the New Era “Meet & Greet”. They chopped it up about Tor’s latest EP, “Off The Record,” his favorite track “Journey Pt II and more. Torae also talks about wanting to work with Just Blaze, Erick Sermon as well as Marsha Ambrosius and Chaka Chan. Lastly, Torae talks about his next project and “dream project”. Shouts to Junie & Ace.
Sorry for the hiatus, I was down in Atlanta putting in work, I’m back now! Lyrics after the jump. #DailyBread
For the fourth consecutive year Team Torae will be trooping down to the dirty south for the A3C Festival in Atlanta. This time in addition to Tor’s rapping & hosting duties he’s added panel speaking to his repertoire. Check the flyer for times & dates to catch Torae while he’s in town. Peace.

Bad-perm.com speaks with Torae about the release of his upcoming album “For The Record” down in Atlanta during A3C.
Came across some dope footage of me rocking at A3C this year courtesy of indiemuzikspotlight. Hit the jump for Shakedown & Double Barrel.
It’s about that time again yall, A3C is upon us. This is my 4th year attending the festival & it truly gets better & better with each one. You can find all the info you need HERE & follow their tweets HERE. I got a pretty full plate for A3C 2011 so I figured I’d put all the info in one place. I’m so considerate I know, I know.

Known for a roster of impressive collaborations, Torae has assembled an awe-inspiring crew of beatsmiths for accompaniment. From the renowned Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Diamond D and Large Professor; to those Torae labels “new legends,” 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Fatin, Illmind, Eric G., Marco Polo and Nottz.
“The combination of stellar production and a focused and more introspective Torae makes this his best work to date,” states Brooklyn legend, Masta Ace
For The Record raises the bar Torae has set with previous releases. A refreshing return to the multifarious nature of 2008’s “Daily Conversation”, the project is a notable change from 2009’s Double Barrel with Marco Polo, and this year’s mono-thematic Heart Failure EP. Fans will hear his skills sharpened; an array of cadences and intricately weaved rhyme patterns. He is also at his most vulnerable and transparent; providing a view through a wide-angle lens at the man behind the MC, as heard on “Panorama” and “Reflection.” Still there’s no shortage of the hard-hitting audacity we love on tracks like “Shakedown” and “You Ready.”
Also distinct is the absence of other voices on For The Record. According to Torae, the choice to forego lyrical assists was deliberate. “No one can tell my story like me.”
